He says, “We are in week three of the pre-order of “Bones Brigade, An Autobiography” and by overwhelming demand we’ve gone back into our skate collections and cherry picked another round of historic items to offer directly from the Bones Brigade website.
This week there are rare items from Tony, Tommy, McGill, George and myself; from signed posters to postcards, rare team jackets to Quicktail boards to a series of 50 new signed Ripper boards with all eight signatures. We will probably have two more offerings in the next few weeks leading up to the final release of our film. Next Friday we expect to be presenting items from Rodney and Caballero’s collections.”
The film is to be available for purchase on November 6th.
